Pata Honda’s Jonathan Rea will focus on trying to move the pace he can achieve late on in World Superbike races nearer to light out at this weekeng’s Magny-Cours round.
The Isle of Man resident, who is set to move to Kawasaki in 2015, believes that he stands more chance of podiums if the late-laps speed can be transferred to the start of races on new tyres and a full fuel load.
“Last time out in Jerez we had some really good pace at the end of the races – probably among the strongest. Now we need to work on getting that pace earlier in the race to allow us to challenge for podiums and wins,” said Rea.
“But we’ll be starting in Magny-Cours with what we know and concentrate through the weekend on getting the best possible set-up for Sunday.”
